A Great Place to Stay in San Francisco - user review

Very Old Ladyish - user review
It's a great old hotel and a little less expensive than the other stately, old SF legends. well worth the money but a little too much rose wallpaper for my tastes.but you should stay ...

Don´t waste your money - user review
The Fairmont is a San Francisco landmark, and I had always wanted to stay there. When I saw a low internet rate on the Fairmont website, I jumped at the chance. Well, my stay got off to a rough start when my check in was delayed...

Beautiful Hotel Second Visit Service Attitude Lacking - user review
We loved our first visit here several years back because of the tower room with the bridge and bay view. We paid $450 per night this time for the same view and 2 queen beds. In our reservation, we mentioned that this was a ...

Highly Recommended! - user review
While I agree with some of the other epinions, that the SF Fairmont may not be the best value (i.e. return on investment), a stay there is worth the price. For approximately $350 we got an 11th floor room in the tower, breakf...

Be sure to visit the 'Tonga Room' in the Fairmont on weekdays from 5 7pm for their happy hour buffet. What impressed me with this hotel was that the staff was not at all pretentious. Everyone was very...

Nice High End Value Except... - user review
Checking in took way too long. Despite a reasonable arrival of around 6:45 I noticed a long line for check in and only 2 staff members, one of which was handling the club clients. I headed to the Tonga lounge for a cocktail and the tail end of the $7 happy hour buffet. Lounge is downstairs from lobb...

old style Grand Hotel - user review
Christmas was a great time to stay at the Fairmont. The decorations were great and the old world elegance takes you back in time and is very romantic. The only complaint was the towels were scratchy and hard...a little fabric softner would help! Overall, I would highly recommend this nicely situated...

I stay at Fairmont four nights the last week of the year 2006. I took a little vacation with my two children for the first time to SF.

Old World Charm - user review
It was a great pleasure to stay and experience The Fairmont in San Francisco. The staff from the very beginning of check in was friendly and helpful. There was no shortage of staff ready to help answer and questions. From the bell staff to the doormen, to the front desk staff, all were very helpful ...

Excellent Service Always - user review
My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont for one night on April 14, 2007. Although we live across the Bay, we typically stay in S.F. for events. On this particular evening, former President Clinton was speaking. Valet: Surprisingly, this was a prompt and efficient experience. Typically, when we stay ...

Parking is expensive, but expected to be in this location. This is a beautiful hotel and the service was great. Traveler's tip on saving a few bucks.Take a cab from the airport.

The checkin was incredibly slow for the President's Club which I am a member. Went to the general section after 15 minutes to get check in service which was great once I got to it. Food service and restaurant is excellent as would be expected, and food quality also. Concierge service dragged out and...

Location, location, location? - user review
The Fairmont is a gorgeous hotel and worth visiting for its landmark status, but you don't have to actually stay there to enjoy it. Being at the top of Nob Hill (a beautiful location) isolates you from other, more bustling parts of the city, such that even an impromptu trip to a coffee house is an e...

Old World Elegance - user review
The Fairmont is a shining example of Old World Elegance. The lobby is straight out of Paris, Rome, or Vienna. The rooms were spacious and the service excellent. My only negative comment is that the hotel sits atop the pinnacle of Nob Hill; any direction that you leave takes you straight down a steep...

Classic Elegance in San Francisco - user review
The Fairmont stood up well to its reputation as the historic queen of Nob Hill. Its restoration is beautiful, bringing back the elegant details created by Julia Morgan following the earthquake and fire of 1906. It's location is like an oasis in a busy city (although you'd better enjoy walking on ste...

Going back in Jan 2007 - user review
We love this hotel. We were there for Thanksgiving weekend and their beautiful Christmas decorations were put up while we were there. We were disappointed that they did away with the restaurant/lounge at the top since our last stay in 1975, but were impressed with the renovation, the old world feel ...

Renovated Hotel - Now Renovate the Service! - user review
Don't go here! While the hotel has been renovated and is absolutely beautiful in places, the service is dismal. My room was actually a charming old suite but I gave everything a low rating as I do not want to encourage anyone to stay at the SF Fairmont that would be a tragedy. From management to the...

Let´s just put it this way: It ain´t the Ritz - user review
Maybe I just expected too much from this hotel. Staff seemed arrogant I wasn't sure if they were waiting on me or the other way around. $85mm renovation appears to have been concentrated to the lobby as the rooms are very tired despite bathroom updates. Generally, the room was not very clean. Worst ...

A grand dame that is a bit tired - user review
My family and I enjoyed our 5 night stay. We were upgraded to a suite so our room was great (although a bit tired in spots). The staff were generally helpful, service was a bit slow at times (especially room service), the concierges ranged from excellent to questionable (recomending the Macoroni Gri...

Beware of what room you reserve! - user review
The Standard Rooms and Fairmont Rooms in the main building are very plain and seem dated. I reserved a fairmont room under a discounted rate for $210 (normally $300 without AAA), when I called the front desk to complain about the odor and air quality in the room they said they could upgrade me to a ...

Beautiful Hotel - user review
We stayed at the Fairmont in the old section. Our room was huge as was the bathroom. Both had huge windows (about 5x10). The lobby was beautiful. This hotel is in a great location. There is a wonderful little cafe a few streets over called the Nob Hill Cafe. The food was great mostly italian. Great ...
